My Fiance and I really enjoyed our experience at the Wakatipu Grill. Staff were really lovely and the food was delicious. We would highly recommend and already looking forward to dinning with them again.

A pity some staff reached across to serve customer across the table... not all the staff did this but very annoying. A little training needed. Rest was perfect dinner.... thanks

The restaurant seemed to be a bit understaffed and could do with more staff.

Everything was amazing. We are locals and hadn't been for a while. Decided to catch the ferry across - perfect. Greeted at the restaurant like long time friends, great table with views. All staff were super friendly and attentive. Food super tasty and presented beautifully. Cauliflower dish and the salmon dish a stand out. Cant wait to go back. Well done team.

Food was good, but service was very slow - The staff were friendly and doing their best, but were just not able to keep up with the volume of dinners, which meant that everything took a lot longer than it should have. The staff that were there that night put in a good effort, but given how busy the restaurant was that night, I think there should have been at least two more staff on. It was fortunate that we were not in a hurry, because dinner took a very long time...

I’ve visited the grill a couple of times. The food is great and Grant and his team do an excellent job. The service delivery is somewhere poor. - not acknowledging arrival - no table ready at time of booking - long time to take a drink order - no explanation of food or specials - no follow up on how we enjoyed the food The grill competes with restaurants in town but value for price and service is not to be compared. I think the team can do better.

The manager from Kerry Ireland who seated us set the atmosphere for a great night. I have been to wakitipu grill several times and come back each time for the excellent service and delicious food. However, this time the bar was set even higher. The manager from Kerry helped us celebrate our new baby and grandparents visiting from the UK from the moment he sat us. Then we had Laura from Falkirk as our waitress who’s service was seamless and delightful. All around a great experience- thank you! The food, as always - incredible!

We had a great meal with an awesome view as we sat right in the window looking over the lake. Dishes were well put together and the amuse-bouche was a nice touch.
